    Jimmer in the NBA?

    Al he would be doing is taking away a bench spot away from an up and comming bench player like Mika.

    I like Jimmer....but to say an NBA team just needs to give him a chance? He's already had that fact, several chances. He belongs in China.

    Hey Who Am I sir:

    You said "And the guy he was guarding scored 100 of 100 lay-ins."

    So Jimmer Won 276 to 200 (In case you missed the math, 92x3=276 and 100x2=200)

    I would take 92 three point shots over 100 two point shots, would you?

    Alls he needs is for the NBA to finally give him a chance. If he just got a chances he would be a all time all star.

    And the guy he was guarding scored 100 of 100 lay-ins.

    What is really 'unfathomable' and 'stupid' is the repeated comments from posters claiming Jimmer would be an NBA star. He might get another shot this year but he has has plenty of opportunities with multiple teams and multiple coaches.

    Good young man, very talented shooter, over hyped by the local newspaper, a star in a secondary league and not an NBA caliber player.

    Well, what did we expect?

    Jimmer forever!

    There's a video of 7-footer Lauri Markennen, a freshman who played at Arizona, hitting 50 NBA threes in a row. He's considered to be - at best - a poor man's version of Dirk Nowitsky.

    Jimmer was given more than a few chances, even getting a shot with the San Antonio Spurs, where Gregg Popovich is known to find diamonds in the rough - like Kawhi Leonard (drafted behind Jimmer in the same draft).

    BYU fans were angry when Sacramento's coaches started playing 5'9" Isaiah Thomas - the last player in that draft, who may get a max contract with Boston - more than Jimmer.

    Jimmy Butler, Klay Thompson, Cory Joseph, and Iman Shumpert were all drafted below Jimmer in 2011.

    Jimmer could score 150 points in a game for the Shanghai Sharks, and it doesn't change his potential for the NBA. He's certainly not the highest drafted "flameout" in NBA history.

    At this point, the D-News is just plain cruel to run these stories about Jimmer.

    We all know why The Jimmer is not in the NBA, and it has nothing to do with his athletic abilities!
    Where are you Millers?
    Where are you Danny Ainge.
    Would John Stockton even be given a tryout in today's NBA?

    Jimmer is now the greatest player in China and undoubtedly the finest three point shooter the Fundraiser Basketball League has ever produced. Give him a chance NBA!

    Why Jimmer isn't in the NBA is unfathomable. And please don't tell me about his D deficits. Did you see the scores of the NBA playoffs, especially the finals. The is no D in NBA.

    It is definitely impressive to hit 92 of 100 anything, but I would add that it appears (in the video) to be the High School three point line he is shooting from. Still great, but not NBA length.

    All the NBA owners and coaches are stupid. Jimmer should be playing in the NBA right now!

    Say what you will about Jimmer's NBA career, I don't believe there is another player on the planet who could hit 92 of 100 three pointers. Only a couple of NBA players can hit 90 percent of their free throws and he does that, too.
